Denotes questions regarding Magento Attribute Set

Attribute set is a list of certain individual Magento product attributes, which fully describe all product’s characteristics. Attribute set is used during every new product creation.

The attributes are organized into groups that determine where they appear in the product record. Your store comes with an initial attribute set called “default” which includes a set of commonly-used attributes. If you would like to add only a small number of attributes, you can add them to the default attribute set. However, if you sell products that require specific types of information, such as cameras, it might be better to create a dedicated attribute set that includes the specific attributes that are needed to describe the product.
